DeKalb State Court Traffic Division offers citation amnesty program


The DeKalb County State Court Traffic Division is launching a citation amnesty program.

“The goal of our citation amnesty program is to provide individuals with open or delinquent citations an opportunity to efficiently resolve their matters and restore their driving records,” said Presiding Judge Shondeana Morris.

Individuals who previously failed to appear in court, resulting in delinquent traffic tickets, will have their failure to appear fees waived if they dispose of their cases through this program.

The registration period for this program ends on May 17, 2019, and is available to any individual with delinquent citations from January 2010 to December 2018.

Court sessions will be held weekdays at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Sign-up for the amnesty program is easy and convenient for individuals wanting to take advantage of this opportunity, as sign-up is available both in person and online during the registration period.

The court is offering online sign-up at The court will also allow sign-up for available sessions starting at 8:30 a.m. each day for the same service.

Citizens can sign up for text or email notifications for their assigned court date for amnesty at Individuals who wish to clear penalties and warrants under this program are encouraged to sign up early. When the time-limited amnesty period ends, any remaining open cases and outstanding warrants will be rigorously enforced.
